Question about HP W19b LCD Monitor

3 Answers

HP w19 display is messed up in many ways!

HP w19. I had this monitor with my old computer and always had problems with the display which I was told had to do with my computer. But i recently got a new computer(just the tower) and kept this monitor to save some money. For the first month it worked perfect with a crystal clear it is blurry and the picture is moved over with about 3 inches of black space on the left hand side, and is cut off on the other side. It has been switching back and forth between this and the picture being fully spread across the screen and the screen flashing black for about 5 seconds every 30 seconds. I have it set to 1280x1024 which is the only display it says is compatible...what can I do to fix it (i have heard that alot of people have had similar problems but havent heard about how they have fixed them)

    crazy...I turned the monitor around to look for that thing and suddenly the display filled the entire screen. Hopefully it stays that way. Thanks!

I am wondering if the monitor is close to some other electrical device like a TV. Try hitting the degausing button if it has one. This is like a monitor reset button and removes stray magnetic forces from the monitor.
most monitors do have them amongst their array of buttons or on the rear might also be a pinhole, but be carful incase you touch a live wire

My; picture blurs sometimes. not 3 inches but only about 3mm. after months and frustration installing drivers, i reached up to turn it around to check if the plugs were tight, and the picture came to a fine focus. i couldn't believe it. just hit it

I think your computer is very close to some high tension electrical wire or transformer etc.

Change the position of your computer and let me know. Only after that i can suggest something.

HPW2338h goes black after about 3 seconds. Push power button on, it turns on and then black after 3 seconds. Power light on monitor stays on.


you can try to change the screen resolution with a spare monitor to a different setting, usually higher 1024X768, then unplug the old monitor and then plug in the flat screen. try different resolutions untill it submits. if you cant get it to run on your machine, take it to another computer and see if you can get it to run on that. if it wont run on either then you have a problem with the monitor. pawn shops usually have flatscreens for way cheaper than new..

Our one year old monitor comes on, but then goes black after just a few seconds. it is not the graphics card. I hooked it up to another computer and it did the same thing.

If the monitor power light on remains on, either the monitor itself or VGA cable is faulty. Move the cable to see if there is any change on the display. I'd suggest changing the cable - less expensive than a monitor. If not the cable, the monitor is faulty.

Black striped down left hand side of display

Hi Danny, you haven't been very clear I will assume you pushed the auto configure on the monitor,
I would go into the menu on the monitor and reset the size of the screen if it has a setting for that 1024x768 should fix the problem
let me know what you find as I have never worked with a hp W19 monitor, if nothing else set the monitor to defaults again in the menu and that may get you back to having normal screens.
